Improving Cancer Care By Participating In Research

Improving Cancer Care by Participating in Research

Nearly 15.5 million cancer survivors are living in the U.S. today, and that number is expected to grow to more than 20 million by 2026.  We’ve seen remarkable progress in the fight against cancer, but with the Kaiser Permanente Research Bank, we can do far more to meet the needs of people living with cancer.

Studying Cancer at Kaiser Permanente

Kaiser Permanente provides care for more than 500,000 people with cancer every year. By taking part in our Research Bank, you help answer important research questions that improve the care we provide and the lives of people living with cancer. Our Research Bank includes more than 55,000 people who’ve been diagnosed with cancer who are helping researchers better understand long-term cancer survival, cancer treatment, and quality of life.

Everyone is unique. How cancer affects you and your life can be different from someone else based on age, race, ethnicity, income, education, and other differences. To learn how to best fight cancer, we need people from all backgrounds to join the Kaiser Permanente Research Bank.

Do you know someone that can help? We encourage you to talk with your friends and families about joining the kp.org/researchbank. Their participation could be key to new findings that make life better for future generations.
